Getting measured for a Kilt

Note waist higher than trouser waist and to the top of the knee.For men it is important to have the correct "starting point" which is exactly 2 inches above the hip bone.

From this starting point measure across the stomach , this is the waist measurement. Note: this waist measurement is not the same as a trouser waist measurement, as the kilt is worn higher, the waist measurement is usually greater than the trouser measurement.

Whilst kneeling on the floor and keeping your back upright. That is, not looking forward and down whilst taking the measurement, measure from the starting point (2 inches above hip) to the floor. There is a temptation to lean forward to view the measurement but this causes an inaccurate length measurement.

Take the widest area across the bottom, and measure around, do not pull the tape measure tight, this should be a fairly loose measurement.
